My husband had a cardio-cath done last week and I have a question not in the literature. He has no discoloration or swelling at the incision site but has a huge hard lump under the skin. Should i insist on his going to the er?
I : I assume this was done through the groin, not the arm. It's very common to have a painful bump in the area they inserted the catheter. It will last a week or so. They should have advised him to avoid stairs and lifting for a week. If he were bleeding under his skin, the entire area would be swelling, and he'd be feeling weak and light-headed. When in doubt, call the cardiologist who did the catheterization. I'm speaking from personal experience, not as a podiatrist. It took a week for my pain and bump to go down. Who would have thought that the way to a man's heart is through his groin? Hope this helps. ...Read more

Just got tb skin test and small 4 mm area is pinkish red like bleeding under the skin but no swelling or bump. Is this positive? Freaking out.
No: PPD/Mantoux/TB tests are interpreted by measuring the degree of induration (raising of skin), not discoloration. In addition the cutoff for size for positive test is: 15mm for low risk patient 10mm for high risk patient 5mm for HIV patient so in no case would 4mm qualify as a positive test; though again 4mm of pinkish red color without swelling is meaningless. ...Read more

Have a lump under the skin on the shaft of my penis its been there for ages. Every now and again it will swell a little and be a bit sore if I grip it?
Sebaceous cyst?: Since this has been unchanged "for ages", this probably isn't at all serious. A sebaceous cyst probably is the best bet. Try to avoid messing with it, which might be why it swells and gets sore; you may be making things worse. Or see a doctor and ask about potential minor surgery (incision and drainage, or removal) to prevent risk of more serious inflammation or infection. ...Read more
